St. Barbara, St. Martha, St. Nicholas, Oh My!
Tomorrow the St. Martha's guild is meeting at my house. I realized I never explained the name of the guild. It is named after the actual saint, sister of Mary and Lazarus, not the famous woman who says "It's a good thing." We meet to do handwork and eat and pray together.
I still don't know what I'm making, though I'm leaning toward a fruitbread with cream cheese. As for the project, it will be all stocking all the time. St. Nicholas Day is Monday, which means I need the stocking finished by Sunday night. I'm pretty close, and between the guild meeting tomorrow and a birthday party I'll be taking taking Alexander to, I should have it finished or just have the heel to do by Sunday morning. Then if I have to, I can finish in the car on the way to church.
Rich and I are strongly considering recycling some of the millions of pounds of candy the boys have in the house and just sticking that in their stockings with some new mini-flashlights or those LED lights.
I haven't been able to get the pictures posted from the All Saints' party. Our cd drive is acting bizarre, so I need to take the cd to Rich's work, have him open them and e-mail me the relevant photos. This could take years.
